我爱他们

这是个唐氏综合症的孩子,
too young to ask his name,
但一直一直想要抱抱,
我就是择着一半豆角的时候被他抱住了,
不仅喜欢抱抱还喜欢被牵着走,
就大概是半拖半拉的样子。
这儿的孩子真的很依赖我们啊,
尤其是那些智力不全的孩子们,
还是挺自责的,
毕竟第一眼看过去会本能的退却,
但 看着看着也就顺眼了。

My Shanxi Volunteer Trip

只要音乐一响起,几个女孩立刻就开心地跳起来唱起来!
孩子们都那么开心、阳光,个个都那么美!互相之间几乎没有冲撞打闹,孔妈妈一直教导他们的就是相亲相爱 孔妈妈聊起每个孩子都有特别的地方,看得出从心底溢出来的爱意!范爸爸不擅言辞,常年默默地一起支撑这个大家庭,头发白了、皱纹多了,而笑容依旧那么纯朴、灿烂!
一天下来挺累,却久久无法入睡!其实我本是利用周末陪同一下女儿,支持她参加公益活动,而事实上也是一同在受教育,甚至感触更深!扪心自问我连孔妈妈的百分之一都做不到,可能做到的是如何将微薄的帮助变成一项长期的支持。

​​​​​​​​​​​​​In recent years, the number of children born with disabilities has been on the rise due to air pollution and food contamination in China. Many children are abandoned by their biological parents upon birth due to natural disability. The elderly with disabilities, Mrs. Kong Lanzhen in Qixian County, Shanxi Province, have adopted nearly 100 handicapped children who have been abandoned in the streets for decades. Currently, she and her husband are raising 38 handicapped children at home, try to give these children a complete home without any government funds. World Family Children Foundation has sponsored Kong Lanzhen and her children since 2015. The 2018 Summer Project is a short-term volunteer project to help those handicapped children in Shanxi. The four-day project is set to help the children by tutoring, fundraising, playing games and hand-crafting etc.  Students enrolled in this program will receive 40 hours of US volunteer time (50 hours will qualify for the US President Volunteer Service Award), and our organization will also provide students who participating in this program a nice recommendation letter while he/she is applying for the universities in the United States and other Western universities.​  ​近年来,由于空气及食品污染的问题在中国日益严重,天生残疾儿童的数量也日益增加,很多孩子一来到这个世界上就因天生残疾而被亲生父母遗弃。 在山西祁县的残疾老人孔兰贞老人几十年来收养了近百个弃落在街头的残疾孩子,至今她和她的老伴还养育着38个残疾儿童。在完全没有政府资助的情况下,她用她微薄的力量给了这些孩子一个完整的家。 美国国际家庭儿童基金会从 2015 年开始资助孔兰贞老人和她的孩子们。2018年暑期项目是一个帮助山西残疾儿童的短期义工项目,此项目为期 4 天,活动内容主要是辅导孩子们 的学习,为孩子们筹款,与孩子们一起玩游戏、做手工,帮助照顾幼小以及不能自理的残疾儿童等。参加此项目的学生将会获得 40 个小时的美国义工时间 (满 50 个小时将合格申请美国总统杰出义工奖),我们机构还将为参与本项目的学生提供申请美国以及其他西方国家大学的推荐信。

in dirty clothes. It looks like they have stopped taking shower for a long time and we smell something disgusting, but we didn’t show our mood from our face because we all know they are all very poor, nobody give them enough love. So we must help them rather than despise them. When I tried to talk with them, they were a little shy.........

我的山西之行

By Guangliang Wei魏光亮

今天走进了孔妈妈她的一家,
到那里之后才想起来之前在电视上看到过孔妈妈的事迹,

但去之前真的没想到。
里面的孩子很多,

大都是还没到上初中年龄的,
几乎全部是丢在孔妈妈门口的(前一两个是捡的)。
孩子们
有失明的,有脑残的,有少了一个耳朵的,有兔唇的。

院里的环境确实不怎么好,

脏乱差这种形容词可以说用在这个小院里是在贴切不过的,
但这个小院(一名在中国 留学的德国 人捐赠)已经比原来那个电视刚刚报导孔妈妈时的那个院子好了太多太多。
看到失明的孩子砸着自己的头,
脑残的孩子哭嚎,脑积水的孩子在床上翻来覆去,

我的心是很疼痛的,如同被利剑穿透了心胸。

为什么他们要经历这样的苦难,

他们的苦难甚至现在还看不到尽头

我想触摸那些孩子为他们分担一些痛苦,又想跑出这个充满了人生伤痛,仿佛被上帝抛弃的地方。

但是我接着又看见了孩子们可以在音乐下载歌载舞(现在《爸爸》《借过》《隐形的翅膀》《虫儿飞》的旋律还在脑海中回响)。

我和孩子一起转呼啦圈,拼积木,告诉他们我爱唱歌我爱运动时他们的笑容在我脑海中不断回放,像天使的笑颜。

孔妈妈一家都是信教的,孔妈妈不断的教育孩子包容,互相爱护,

我想着应该是家里的孩子几乎不怎么起冲突(脑残的孩子真的什么都听不懂的没有办法) 的原因吧。
孔妈妈个子很矮,照顾孩子的重压让她的背变驼,

但是一个六十九岁的老人是如此精神抖擞,

从她的身上我只能看到难以用语言形容的美丽,在和她聊天的过程中她一直在笑。

我想,是她的信仰,让她能三十年始终如一的坚持收养孩子。

如果不是亲眼所见,我很难相信世界上居然有这样高大的人,

显得我们众人都矮小起来。我觉得孔妈妈的为人已近圣。
我相信,孔妈妈的事业会继续下去,她的精神会传递下去。

我更相信,善良之师所向无敌.

Last week, I went to Shanxi and helped some children who were abandoned by their parents. There are 40 children there and some of them have some mental disabilities. They cannot speak, move nor understand what we talk about. I feel pity for them and I really think this world is not fair for them. They have made no mistakes but why their parents are so merciless.  That’s makes me feel sad and a bit angry.

​When I went there, I saw an old house and many children dressed
